Thoughts - August 27, 2016

“The world will give you that once in awhile, a brief timeout; the boxing bell rings and you go to your corner, where somebody dabs mercy on your beat-up life.”
― Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees.
I've always loved that word....'mercy'. "Mercy me!", the old folks would say. "Traveling mercies", my friend Barbara often tells people. "Have mercy", the prayers state. "An abundance of mercy", the blessed invoke. "Show mercy", the just and loving think. May your day be filled with all kinds of mercies! - Beth Almond Ford
